what about mini cornfritters with sour cream and a piece of salmon

club sammies always go down well. you can get those mini eclairs and cheese puffs from the super market. Balinis (mini piklets) with jam and cream, also from the supermarket. sausage rolls cut small, savouries. fruit platter

I know they are hokey but I have never been to a gathering where (tinned) asparagus rolls don't all disappear, also (tinned) salmon and a good quality mayonnaise.

Why not just make what you were asked to make.I would offer a variety of both sweet and savoury. Sounds like you got the sweet to make.

i agree - these made with the freshest white bread are popular.

French bread, sliced & topped with Salmon Philadelphia Cream Cheese & fresh salmon or Cream Cheese & crispy bacon.

have they asked someone else to do the savoury stuff.

If the bride and groom has asked you to do truffles, shouldn't you either do truffles or say no!

Sorry to digress, but are the bride and groom having photos BEFORE their wedding! I'm asking really only because if they are getting married following the photos, wouldn't there be a reception! Are you preparing for an afternoon tea before the reception or is the wedding taking place another day!

Profitteroles filled with a cream cheese filling are very nice - had them a wee while ago at a function and they were a 'hit'.

I hope you have advised the bride and groom that you would prefer to do something savoury and are not just going against what they have asked!

Blinis are mini pikelets of the savory kind so have no sugar added

devalois, Oct 13, 9:35pm
No, wedding at 1400 then reception at 1700.so it's for the afternoon tea. And yes, I agree: someone else is likely doing the savoury stuff. Thanks for all above ideas, however: devalois

Could you make Alison Holst milk truffles they are yummy and easy to make with out being covered in chocolate unless you wanted to and would be easy to eat for a nibbly bite or I have a recipe for peppermint balls that everyone loves I also make a mushroom sauce that you could make into bread or pastry cases do you want that recipe I think people at that kind of occasion will eat both sweet and savory

i once helped out at a 21st with only finger food, she cut telegraph cucumbers into cm slices, topped with cream cheese and salmon bit of dill, devils on horseback (very retro but all go fast), blini, sushi, chicken nuggets with dipping sauce, samosa, spring rolls, club sammies, mini quiche, fruit platters, vege and hummus
